Guilherme Martinez received his BFA in Fine Art from Rocky Mountain College of Art + Design in 2009 (whenever you graduated). His studies primarily focused on conceptual work, and his most notable work addresses the constraints of two-dimensional painting by breaking the boundaries into the third dimension. His seemingly warped, abstract frames are draped with stretched canvas that folds, wrinkles, and protrudes from the frame, forcing the viewer to question traditional norms of painting and fine art. The amorphic works have a unique demanding aesthetic presence that draws in the viewer to confront the conceptual issues that he has presented.
Currently, Guilherme Martinez's work is a personal journey and experiment in photorealism. Going back to his strong roots in realism and his medium of choice, colored pencil, Guilherme renders his selected portraits to hold a fantastic sense of color that goes beyond reality and photography.
